Bring on the Bowls

Last year our prognosticators had a tremendous collective run. We’ll see how they do this year. There is a new entry into the derby this year. Let me introduce the participants:

  1. What’s with the payoffs that are other than 11/10? Thanks for doing this, looks very interesting.

      These are all moneylines (IE, team to win). Thus, a team could be a 3-1 underdog, but if someone thinks they have a 35% chance to win, they would risk 13.33% of their bankroll on the upset. That would be 13,333 to win 40,000

  2. Got it, thank you. Looking forward to the results and standings!
